  • I like the premise of the book

  • the story takes place in a ruined and toxic landscape where a community exists in a giant silo underground, hundreds of stories deep. There, men and women live in a mysterious and controlling civilization that is full of regulations they believe are meant to protect them.

  • and this is actually series of five short books that make up a standard series

  • I find stories that are based underground fascinating

  • the setting of the book reminds me of Metro 2033 games. The images that I construct in my head resemble a dark and dreary silo that is inhabited by people who beleive they are one of the last people in the world.

  • fans of Dystopia will like this book

  • Good character and plot development that move along at a good pace. You won't get bored.

  • I look forward to reading the next books in the series called Shift, which is actually a prequel. Based on a quick scan of the reviews, it gets even better.

  • Hugh Howey is now among my "to watch" authors which means I will most likely check out and read most of his other books

  • I won't be surprised if this turns into a movie one day

  • I don't want to say anything else besides that you should probably read this.

in a nutshell

Dystopia fans will like this one

Birthdays are good for you. Statistics show that the people who have the most live the longest.
